7:00 am
good morning, america. breaking overnight, the president addresses the spy agency leaker for the first time. as edward snowden makes new taunts from his hong kong hideout and his father pleads with him to stop the leaks. >> they're trying to take my things away. they're trying to inject me. they're trying to kill me. >> that terrifying incident on that jumbo jet at 30,000 feet caught on tape as a crazed passenger saying he was poison jumping on him till the plane landed. the business suit brawl. a road rage attack that took everyone driving by surprise on a freeway entrance. what made this lawyer with the perfect record snap as other drivers rushed in to help. just plain outrageous. is this guy the worst airline baggage handler in the world? the video gone viral this
7:01 am
morning, oh, could that be your package right there? good morning, america. hope you're enjoying these last few days of spring and we're going to show you right now a major milestone in america's longest war. american troops in afghanistan will no longer take the lead in any missions, all combat decisions will be made by afghan forces as the u.s. prepares to withdraw. that is today. >> that is a major milestone to say the least, george. but we'll get right to the latest on the president's strong words for nsa leaker edward snowden. and that dramatic plea by snowden's father for his son to stop what he's doing. abc's brian ross is here. he's been tracking this for us. good morning. >> reporter: these latest leaks in edward snowden's campaign seem to be timed for maximum embarrassment for the u.s. and
7:02 am
the president as he remains in hiding at this hour. as world leaders gather in northern ireland for the so-called g-8 summit snowden is revealing how the u.s. and britain have been routinely spying on them. snowden gave "the guardian" newspaper top secret documents revealing how the british government spied on diplomatic targets from all nations and their smartphones and a similar meeting of world leaders in 2009. overnight, strong words from president obama. should he be prosecuted? >> i'm not going to comment on prosecution. >> okay. >> he -- the case has been referred to the doj for criminal investigation. >> and possible extradition. >> and possible extradition. >> reporter: snowden is still believed to be in hong kong in hiding as even his own father went on fox news to urge him to stop the leaks. >> but i just ask that you measure what you're going to do and not release any more information. >> reporter: the fbi continues
7:03 am
to develop evidence for criminal charges against snowden. agents have been at his last known address in hawaii where abc news discovered his car still parked in the garage. snowden's leaks are reverberating around the world with the chinese now calling on the u.s. to explain last week's disclosure that the u.s. was hacking on chinese targets. >> is the equivalent of a chinese spy if he gives china details of u.s. intelligence operations that were run against chinese networks. >> reporter: answering questions online monday on "the guardian" newspaper site, snowden denied he was a spy and said "being called a traitor by former vice president dick cheney over the weekend was the highest honor you can give an american." snowden also described a kind of dead man switch to make sure his documents are made public no matter what saying, "the u.s. government is not going to be able to cover this up by jailing me or murdering me." robin and george, that's what he said.
7:04 am
>> strong statement there. brian, thank you. now to more from president obama. he spoke out as we saw not only about edward snowden's revelations but also syria and so much more in an interview released overnight. our chief white house correspondent jon karl is traveling with the president in ireland. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, george. as the president wraps up his meetings with world leaders here he is pushing back hard against critics at home saying he's not doing enough about the crisis in syria. behind all the smiles at the annual summit of the world's economic powers, big disagreement between russia and the united states about what to do over the crisis in syria. in the interview with charlie rose for pbs, president obama lashed out at critics who say his offer of small arms to the syrian rebels is too little too late. >> if you haven't been in the situation room poring through intelligence and meeting directly with our military folks, unless you've been involved in those conversations, then it's kind of hard for you
7:05 am
to understand that the complexities of the situation and how we have to not rush into one more war in the middle east. >> reporter: the president also weighed in on iran and their recent election of a relatively moderate president. >> i think it says that the iranian people want to move in a different direction, clearly you have a hunger within iran to engage with the international community in a more positive way. >> reporter: and closer to home, president obama defended newly revealed nsa programs including those gathering data on americans. >> some people say, well, you know, obama was this raving liberal before. now he's, you know, dick cheney, dick cheney sometimes says, yeah, he took it all lock, stock and barrel. my concern has always been that we shouldn't do intelligence gathering to prevent terrorism but rather are we setting up a systems of checks and balances? >> reporter: this afternoon president obama travels to berlin. while there he will give a speech at the historic
7:06 am
brandenburg gate 50 years after john kennedy gave his famous e speech. it was during the 2008 campaign when he addressed one of his largest audiences ever. >> thanks, jon, very much. no you to that frightening incident high in the sky. a passenger screaming he was poisoned on an international flight. his fellow passengers racing to subdue him and holding him down until they could land. abc's gio benitez is here with this very frightening moment. >> reporter: it is, robin. good morning to you. for the first time we're seeing and hearing that man as he throws a tantrum on the airplane. it was on the last leg of a very long flight and passengers weren't taking any chances. this is the man federal authorities believe terrified passengers in the middle of a 15-hour united airlines flight from hong kong to newark monday. >> somebody help me. divert, divert, divert.
7:07 am
>> reporter: his hands zip tied. his face hidden by a hoodie daniel perry was quickly put into an ambulance by fbi agents waiting on the tarmac after passengers say he started screaming that he had been poisoned. >> they're trying to take my things away. they're trying to inject me. they're trying to kill me. >> reporter: along with a flight attendant and other passengers jacques roisen jumped into action jumping on top of that man then restraining him with plastic handcuffs for the flight's remaining six hours. >> he saw everybody as a threat. he thought everybody was working for the fbi, the cia. >> reporter: roizen says the suspect believed to be american says he knows state seeks just like edward snowden, the whistle-blower who leaked nsa secrets. >> there was no time to understand or think, you know, we needed to restrain him. >> reporter: passengers have reason to be on edge recently. on friday a man aboard a frontier air flight to denver claimed to have a bomb inside his backpack. >> we were just extremely
7:08 am
scared, worried. i can't even describe how fast my heart was beating. >> reporter: on saturday another scare. a threatening note found in the bathroom of an egypt air flight. that made an emergency landing in scotland. no bomb was found on either plane. and the fbi says the man from monday's united flight is in a hospital this morning undergoing a psychiatric evaluation. in that video you saw, he shouted out his name, birthday, social security number, even his mom's phone number and while it appears he never posed any real threat, the scare has left many on board shaken, rob and george. >> understandably so. how many types have we seen how quickly passengers react. >> cuffs. turn to josh elliott. other developing stories. good morning. we'll begin again with that major turning point, some call it seminal overnight in the war in afghanistan. this morning nato forces handed over control of security operations to the afghan military and police which means from this point on, u.s. and
7:09 am
coalition troops will provide only support until they withdraw themselves late next year. this comes just before today's ceremony in kabul, a reminder of the challenges that remain, a roadside bomb targeting an afghan politician blew up and killed several civilians in the process. also overnight, those raging floodwaters that have swept away entire neighborhoods in northern india are now being blamed for at least 73 deaths. the video hard to watch but the number could, in fact, rise dramatically. heavy rains have triggered landslides, washed out roads as you can see here and trapped an estimated 70,000 people. meanwhile, back in this country, another high-profile sexual assault case in the military. three naval academy football players will soon face charges in connection with the alleged assault of a female midshipman at an off campus party. navy investigators have been criticized for not moving quickly enough in the case. just last month, president obama told naval academy graduates
7:10 am
that sexual assaults have undermined confidence in the military. and a busy freeway near los angeles looked more like a disaster movie last night. a truck driver went the wrong way driving south in the north of bound lanes. it caused an eight-car pileup. a dozen people hurt. three of them critically. we'll have update as more news becomes available. also in los angeles, a road rage attack. two men you see them here dressed in full business attire had just driven off the freeway. they were at a red light when they started going at it. police say the attacker, a lawyer, will now head to court as a defendant facing battery charges. and two teenagers had to be rescued some 8600 feet in the air off a cliff near lake tahoe. they were hiking and got stuck on a ledge. heavy winds though kept blowing the rescue helicopter off course. thankfully a crew was finally able to drop a harness to the
7:11 am
boys and hoist them to safety. thankfully they were not hurt. despite all the complaining about ticket prices and fees, a new survey shows satisfaction among airline customers is actually up. it's hit its highest level in almost two decades. jetblue and southwest airlines are rated best. this guy, however, that you're about to see doesn't work for either of them. is he the worst baggage handler -- i mean he's tied for the worst. i can't imagine it gets worse than this. boxes being then as you can see on a conveyer belt at a chinese airport. more falling on the ground than getting into the plane then takes a phone call because he's been working so hard and really had to squeeze in that call. thankfully somebody else actually came over and did his work for him. it gives you a little shudder, you know, knowing how -- yeah, just a touch. >> a wee bit. game six tonight, spurs/heat. >> back this miami. >> we still got a chance. >> i think so. >> keep hope alive. >> this is the big one. >> tonight is the big one.
7:12 am
>> okay, thanks, guys. now to those serious charges against 7-eleven. dozens of stores, the target of a federal investigation for bringing undocumented workers into the u.s., forcing them into virtual slavery. abc's rebecca jarvis is on the case. she joins us now from one of the stores sized by the feds on long island. good morning, rebecca. >> reporter: hi, george. good morning and this is 1 of 14 stores police have seized from franchise owners under the management of 7-eleven corporation and this morning, the probe continues to widen. the accusations of cruelty and mistreatment now span independently owned 7-eleven stores in eight states from illinois to florida to new jersey, so far nine owners and managers from pakistan and the philippines arrested for running what the feds are calling modern-day plantations. >> the franchise owners that we have charged were engaged in a pattern of fraud and worker exploitation. >> reporter: authorities say the owners were making millions of dollars exploiting illegal
7:13 am
immigrants for more than a decade forcing them to work 100-hour weeks but paying them for just a fraction of their time. they were even allegedly made to live in 10x10 rooms inside cramped boarding houses. >> it was a terrible environment for these employees and they were ruthlessly exploited by the franchise owners. >> reporter: all the while investigators say the alleged ringleader and his wife were living in this mansion. in order to evade authorities and 7-eleven corporate policies, police say the illegal workers were given stolen identities, even from people who had died. police say i.d.s included everyone from a coast guard cadet to an 8-year-old child. >> the employees were threatened when they complained which was rare with the threat of deportation with the threat of job loss. >> reporter: police have not implicated 7-eleven corporation but say the company lacked adequate checks and balances in its payroll department. in a statement to abc news, the
7:14 am
company says it's cooperating with authorities and will take aggressive actions to audit the employment status of all its franchises' employees. and if convicted, the accused could face up to 20 years in prison. the undocumented workers' future is less clear but authorities say in some cases the workers could be deported, robin. >> all right, rebecca, thank you very much. now to dramatic testimony in the high-profile trial of reputed boston mob boss white ideal bulger. an ex-hit man on the tan monday to testify against him, a man he was so close to he named his youngest son after bulger. abc's pierre thomas has the latest and joins us from washington. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, robin. as the trial of bulger goes into high gear prosecutors brought in a star witness, a self-avowed hit man who feels betrayed by bulger. james "whitey" bulger is the accused legendary mob boss of boston, a man who's alleged
7:15 am
criminal ex-mroirts has been the stuff of movies. >> are you still a cop? >> no. no. no. >> reporter: but at his trial monday prosecutors put former hit man john martorano on the stand to prove that bulger's rein was not glamorous but murderous. we had a lot of problems with people. you know, you just kill them before they kill you. bulger, martorano suggested, did not just order killings, he wanted to be there to witness the bloodshed. martorano said he gunned down a man named indian al with bulger in a second car watching nearby. killing was routine. in all martorano murdered at least 20 people. bulger's defense attorneys portrayed him as a paid liar doing the fbi's bidding because he got a deal from prosecutors. though the murders were long ago, for surviving family members the pain is till fresh. >> sick to my stomach now. >> reporter: the jury saw photos of some of the victims, bullet ridden cars and surveillance of
7:16 am
bul bulger. he's involved in 19 murders and for much of that he was a paid fbi informa anant ratting out r mobsters. it sort of broke my heart, he said. they broke all trust that we had, all loyalties and i was just beside myself with it. prosecutors believe judgment day is finally coming but bulger by all accounts does not look concerned. the most the case has gotten out of him so far, a snicker, robin. >> okay, pierre. a snicker, thanks. >> okay, robin, thanks. more on the president's trip overseas. it's a family affair. first lady, sasha and malia having fun catching up on family history and i'm getting ready for a special lunch. here's abc news's linzie janis. ♪ it's a beautiful day you know it's a buhl day from u2's bono invites you to finnegans. while dining with a rock star is one of the perks of being a

7:32 am
releezed monday serving only 7 of the 30 days he was sentenced to. not so common in courtrooms what he did. >> are you satisfied with your attorney. >> he's awesome. >> okay. you should be. he did a great job for you, sir. >> reporter: there followed the infamous celebratory butt pat eliciting chuckles from the gallery and scowls from the bench. let's go to the instant replay. even though the judge is legally blind she seems to see everything that happens in her courtroom. >> mr. johnson, i don't know that you're taking this whole thing seriously. i just saw you slap your attorney on the backside. is there something funny about what's going on here today? >> i didn't laugh. no, ma'am. >> but the whole courtroom laughed because you just slapped your attorney. >> reporter: this as she was about to accept his plea deal for violating probation. he was accused of head butting his then wife last year. even his lawyer couldn't help him this time. >> i don't think it was done as any disrespect to me. >> the whole courtroom is laughing because he just slapped
7:33 am
you on the behind. >> i know. >> reporter: instead of walking out of court a free man, the judge slapped him with a jail sentence. >> as a condition of his probation to serve 30 days in the broward county jail. >> the judge ordered him to 25 hours of community service and has to undergo domestic violence counseling and extended his probation by a couple of months. his attorney, the victim of the butt pat says johnson will comply with all of those conditions and hopes to rehabilitate his nfl career. robin. >> we will take talk to them both. joining us live are chad johnson and his attorney, adam swickle joining us live from miami. we appreciate you wanting to come on and talk with us, chad, and the first question is why did you do that? why did you pat your attorney like that? >> well, that's the way i've always interacted with, you know, life just in general. i know that there's a certain thing called courtroom etiquette which i've never been a part of the court system.
7:34 am
it was a light pat. it wasn't meant to disrespect the courtroom and i didn't think anyone could see it because it was my third time doing so. >> it was your third time you had done that but the first time that people had seen that and the reaction to it, adam, when he did that, were you surprised and did you think, okay, we could be in trouble here? >> no, actually i wasn't very surprised because chad and i are very close and it's just a way that he communicated and thanked me. i was rather surprised that the court took it to the extent that she took it but everybody's got a method of running their own courtroom and the judge felt this was appropriate resolution. >> well, some people did feel that the judge overreacted but that it does not excuse chad, your behavior, the reason why you were in court because of violating your probation, stemming from a very serious charge of domestic violation against your then wife and that
7:35 am
many believe that this is was a culmination. do you think that she was justified that it was all of your actions leading up to that point, chad? >> right, yeah, i say that when i came out of court earlier that, you know, i supported her in her decision to give me, you know, the sentence that she did basically after me not meeting the criteria and guidelines i was supposed to meet in a certain amount of time. with them not being done in that time i felt it was right of her to sentence me to 30 days. she had given me a gift before and there was no reason to treat me any different than anyone else. if anyone else is in that situation they would have to do 30 days, as well. >> you went so far, chad, to say that you were thankful to the judge. what did you mean by that? >> well, i mean most definitely. i think judge mchugh was able to do something many have tried to get me do for a long time, slow down, just life in general, slow down, think about what you're going to do and she was able to do that. maybe not in the best circumstances, to those on the outside but i see me thinking about life and where i'm going
7:36 am
from this point going on is probably one of the best things that happened to me. >> your parents haven't been able to slow you down and how can you make people believe, chad, because they feel you've had some chances in the past and you've blown it. what's going to be different this time? >> i mean, you have to understand i haven't had any chances because i never been in any trouble before. i've done nothing wrong ever. this is my first time being in trouble with the legal system. my past has been having fun, entertaining fans when it came to playing the game of football. so as far as this is all new to me and i just -- i try to do my best keeping a smile regardless of 9 situations and usually situations like this, usually break people and i wouldn't allow anything to break me so i try to continue to be my same positive self and i think with me being chad it kind of made the judge feel that i wasn't being serious about the situation, but trust me, i understood exactly what i did and i lost two of the things in life that i love, you know, the most at that time. >> and what were those two things that you lost?
7:37 am
>> football and my now then beautiful -- did say beautiful ex-wife. >> yes, who quickly filed divorce after the incident that happened and are you hoping to play football again? do you think you deserve a chance to play again? >> you know what, i think everyone deserves a second chance. many would say i might not deserve it. i would like to finish my career off the right way and i'd -- i don't want the last thing to be remembered, you know, well, chad was cut from the dolphins, you know, for an incident he had with his wife. i would love the grace, the football field one more time and to help some team if i'm not injured, there's nothing wrong with me, i've learned my lesson especially after those past seven days and that's about it. if it doesn't happen, life goes on, there are many opportunities and doors that will continue to open and we'll see what happens. >> we will see what happens. chad, thank you very much for your willingness to talk with

8:43 am
a friend of the program, les gold, star of trutv's show "hard core barn" a new book "for what it's worth, business wisdom from a pawnbroker." none other to go to than a pawnbroker and les gold. i want to hear about the book then we'll have people come in that will critique their negotiating tactics. >> i can do that. >> the book, we see -- i think i have a feeling and sense of who you are but why did you want to write the book. >> because you didn't know who i really was. this is a journey. this taos about me being 7 years old and making my first sale for
8:44 am
10 bucks felt like a million. from there i was hooked into the business and built a 50-000 square foot facility and now a reality show a hit with million of viewers. it's been a heck of a ride. >> a couple people here. let's get the negotiating going. emily gerard. you brought us what today. >> this is my great great aunt rae's broach. >> so did you have an idea of how much you wanted for it? >> i was thinking at least a thousand. >> why? >> why? i mean it's -- >> sell it to me. >> okay. it's gold, it's got the diamonds -- i think that's a topaz. >> it is. >> it looks pretty big to me. >> you have an emotional bond to it. when you want to sell something take the emotion out of it. when you are selling it to someone, all you're looking at is the piece. so i'm looking at it as a business decision. you're looking at it because it's your aunt. so you wouldn't take 00. >> no. >> you wouldn't take 900?
8:45 am
>> okay, 900. >> okay. >> so then i already know that there's wiggle room. >> emily gerard, thank you very much. stand by. next up. >> hi, how are you. >> james duran with some vintage. >> records that i found in my first apartment in new york city and they are carnegie hall recordings from preworld war ii to 1939, 1942. >> what do you want for them? >> 50 bucks each? >> how did you figure 50? just because it said carnegie. >> yeah. >> you reached up in the sky and said 50 sounds like a good number? bad negotiating. you have to understand as a buyer i have to resell them so there has to be a little wiggle room for me and that's if you read the book you'll get it. >> i will read the book. >> ready to go. >> thank you, james. you know, i wanted to take a look. it seeps do whatever you can to take the emotion out of it. also, do a little -- with the internet, do some homework.
8:46 am
>> right. >> have a reason if nothing he, know what it is i'm trying to sell you. >> right. >> it seeps you can exploit if not an emotional attachment but really if you're coming at it with more information, information is always going to win. >> no question. like i say in the book, three things to do, emotion, when you're selling an item, bring the emotion out of the buyer. when you're buying an item, keep no emotion. know your bottom line and main thing be able to walk away from the deal. if the deal ain't right, walk away. somebody else will want to buy it. >> lessons learned for emily and james. braver than me. i would not do business with you in the nicest possible way. congratulations. >> thank you, josh, very much. >> "for what it's worth", business wisdom from a pawnbroker. terrific stuff.

website as well, goodmorningamerica.com on yahoo! but now hot dog day. >> different kinds of dogs. i propose all the time to people that when you're entertaining to do something inexpensive like a brunch and make one cocktail or fire up the barbecue. this is my byohd idea. >> bring your own hot dog. >> got it. i'm not real fast. >> in our current issue of the magazine we have a double center field of 12 different dress up dogs. this is a favorite of my family. seven-layer dog. make your own guacamole. the trick to any good guacamole sweat out the onions with lime juice and salt and any other flavoring agent, i have garlic and jalapeno or serrano pepper. let it bleed out to get all the flavor and then i'll show you this cute trick. look, you put your wire rack or cookie cooling rack over and smoosh and goes right through and i use a potato masher to
8:51 am
make it quicker. we have some done. don't worry about it. get the pico de galle, lime zest. lime juice, some jalapeno, cilantro, red onion, a little bit of salt, let that hang out a few minutes for the flavors to meld. a brilliant trick for any hog dog, tofu, beef dogs, heat them up in simmering water and slit down down the middle and crisp both sides. already hot through so you're just crisping up the inside and outside of the dog. >> guaranteed to be fully cooked. >> and extra crunchy. here's how you build the seven layers. vegetarian spicy refried beans with a little bit of cumin running through them, give me one of those dogs. >> okay. >> so that's layer one. layer two, layer three is pepper jack and cheddar cheese, layer four, crushed up corn tortillas.
8:52 am
layer five, our homemade guacamo guacamole. guacamole, holy guacamole. layer six, our pico de galle and layer seven, baby, a little of truffle. i don't know, george, you might want to take a break to take a bite out of that. >> she saved me. so sweet. five more over here. >> then we have our ton from our magazine all up on the website for "gma." buffalo dogs with celery and carrots and bleu cheese and hummus dogs with spoked paprika, pickle lover dog with relish, fresh cucumber and celery then we have an italian dog with pesto aioli and seattle dog with cream cheese, grilled onions and hot peppers, all up on the
8:53 am
website. >> make all the cocktails for our event and another affordable idea. everyone that came brought one cocktail and offer soft drinks. we make this with st. germane and gin but it's a smash-up. it's a smashup of blackberries, full of antioxidants. >> a big fan right here. delicious. >> get right up there. >> all the details on all of this and the big dog challenge on goodmorningamerica.com on yahoo!. we'll be right back. >> now you can take a bite.
